Minimally Invasive Spine Surgery

Minimally invasive spine surgery (MISS), or less invasive spine surgery does not involve a long incision, and as a result it avoids significant damage to the muscles around the spine. This muscle sparing technique typically results in less pain after surgery and a faster recovery.

Our surgeons use the most advanced tools to gain access to the spine through smaller incisions. They are able to perform a variety of procedures, such as discectomy, laminectomy, and fusion through minimally invasive approaches.

Advantages of Minimally Invasive Spine Surgery often include smaller incisions, less bleeding and shorter stays in the hospital.
